Hannity: If You Care About Due Process and the Constitution, ‘You Better Get Your Ass to The Polls’

On Friday night, Sean Hannity used some blunt language in hopes of motivating his viewers to get out and vote in the 2018 midterms. During his monologue, Hannity began listing several high-profile races, starting with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), a “proven conservative,” versus Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX), who he criticized for fleeing the scene of a DUI back in the 90s. He then moved to the Arizona Senate race between “war hero” Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) and “radical activist” Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) as well as the Tennessee Senate race between “friend of the show” Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Democratic candidate, “two face” Phil Bredesen. He also praised Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) for his efforts in handling the aftermath of Hurricane Michael, who is running to unseat “Chuck Schumer reliable vote” Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) and gave a shoutout to Rep. Ron Desantis (R-FL), who is running for Continue reading "Hannity: If You Care About Due Process and the Constitution, ‘You Better Get Your Ass to The Polls’"

Mediaite’s Ranking of Best Cable News Show at 9 P.M.: Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow. or Chris Cuomo

Welcome back to Mediaite’s weekly rankings of the best shows on cable news, hour-by-hour. Last week, we picked MSNBC’s All In hosted by Chris Hayes as the best program at 8 p.m. This week is our toughest competition to date. It’s the time slot for ratings titans, when the three top hosts on cable news duke it out for audience, guests, and setting the news cycle. MSNBC boasts Rachel Maddow, its signature star. Fox News has Sean Hannity, the reigning king of cable news ratings. And CNN has Chris Cuomo, a time slot newcomer whose show is proving to be one of the best watches on television. We struggled to come to a conclusive ranking of these three shows. They occupy such drastically different silos of the cable news sphere that it’s almost impossible to find common points of measure by which to compare them. Hannity Continue reading "Mediaite’s Ranking of Best Cable News Show at 9 P.M.: Sean Hannity, Rachel Maddow. or Chris Cuomo"

Newt Gingrich: Election is ‘Life and Death Struggle With a Left-Wing Movement’ Trying to ‘Radicalize America’

Newt Gingrich declared on Fox News that the upcoming midterm elections, unlike any before is a life and death struggle between the forces of good and evil in the world. Sean Hannity noted that he believes “we’re better off” under President Donald Trump, and asked the former Republican House Speaker whether he agreed. Gingrich — whose political bloodlust was just extensively profiled by McKay Coppins in The Atlantic — had this to say: “I think we’re better off but I don’t think that’s what this election is about. This election is a life and death struggle with a left-wing movement which wants to radicalize America.” Scary stuff. As if the messaging wasn’t brazen enough, Gingrich went on to hammer home to keywords he thinks will define the midterm elections: “I think two words are going to define the 2018 election in the next three weeks. One is Kavanaugh Continue reading "Newt Gingrich: Election is ‘Life and Death Struggle With a Left-Wing Movement’ Trying to ‘Radicalize America’"

Hannity Renews Attack on Ben Sasse: Bill Maher Used a Racial Slur In Front of You, and You ‘Said NOTHING’

Sean Hannity has been on a long tear against Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) after a report came out yesterday that the Nebraska Republican criticized him in his new book. To recap: Hannity responded to the book excerpts by calling Sasse a disappointment and accusing him of “conning” him. Sasse later made an offer for them to debate, after which Hannity trashed him as a “con artist” and mocked him as a phony. And Hannity isn’t letting up, this time going after the Republican senator for not being more condemnatory towards Bill Maher: As a refresher, since this was a couple million news cycles ago, Maher spoke with Sasse last year and, as they engaged in some light Continue reading "Hannity Renews Attack on Ben Sasse: Bill Maher Used a Racial Slur In Front of You, and You ‘Said NOTHING’"

Hannity Shreds ‘Con Artist’ Ben Sasse on Twitter: ‘If You Had It Your Way Hillary Clinton Would Be POTUS’

The ongoing feud between Sean Hannity and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) is quickly escalating. While the relationship between the two men hasn’t been cozy in the era of Trump, things got very hostile this week after excerpts of Sasse’s new book trashing Hannity surfaced, accusing him of not being a conservative and that his “core cause is to rage.” Sasse later challenged Hannity to a debate. Well, not only has the Fox News host accepted the challenge, he went on the offense.

Sen. Ben Sasse Challenges Sean Hannity to ‘Debate the Role of the Media’ in Political Division

The beef between Senator Ben Sasse and Fox News host Sean Hannity escalated tonight after the pro-Trump pundit accused Republican lawmaker of going “BERSERK” against him. “If you write a book about the outrage merchants that are dividing America and you fail to mention Sean Hannity because he’s in your party, you aren’t being honest,” Sasse tweeted in response to Hannity’s claim. “I invite you to come out from behind the safety of your cable news desk and join me at a neutral forum to debate the role of the media—Left and Right—in dividing us. Honest conversation isn’t where the quick-hit $ and ratings are — but it’d be good for America.”
